Imaging Solutions for Defense, Industry, and Life Sciences


Until 2006, the founders of the firm that is now Lickenbrock operated under the name AutoQuant Imaging. AutoQuant developed and sold advanced image processing and visualization software for 3D light microscopic imaging used in the life sciences. AutoQuant was sold and the new entity, Lickenbrock Technologies, took a new direction. The Lickenbrock of today concentrates on developing advanced imaging, analysis, and visualization software for a range of private industries and various agencies of the federal government.

For industrial applications, Lickenbrock has recently focused on improvements in non-destructive testing methods for both Computed Radiography and Computed Tomography. Lickenbrock also continues to develop several forms of image restoration algorithms. These include blind deconvolution for ground based telescopes, image deblocking and de-compression, super-resolution imaging, and general deconvolution and denoising of overhead aerial images. Recent work includes using machine learning algorithms for automated defect recognition in solid rocket motors for DoD applications, as well as training algorithms to automatically classify landscape terrains from satellite images. The core of our technology stems from our expertise in high-performance computing, image processing, numerical optimization, and spectral analysis.
